Accredited Asbestos Surveys & Removal London
If you think that your home or workspace may contain asbestos, it is essential to have an asbestos survey carried out immediately. Crucial Environmental specialises in producing surveys that will allow you to draw up your own asbestos management plan in accordance with the requirements of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
When we complete a survey we will locate any asbestos or asbestos-containing materials (ACM) that could potentially be at risk of being damaged or disturbed. You will be provided with a breakdown of the condition of each ACM so that you are able to make a plan for how to deal with them and keep yourself or your staff from harm. We work across the city and beyond, with both residential and business clients. So if you’re in need of an asbestos survey in London, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.

Asbestos surveys are a key part of the management of all types of properties including industrial, commercial, and residential properties. At Crucial Environmental, we have years of experience providing asbestos surveys for buildings all over London and the rest of the UK.
If we find any material that may contain asbestos, we will take representative samples. These samples are then sent off to a favoured UKAS-accredited laboratory where they will be analysed. The results will be used to compile a register of ACMs on the premises. The condition of each ACM is then assessed and we provide recommendations regarding their current state and their future management.

As experts in dealing with all forms of asbestos, we provide asbestos testing as a part of our survey. When we find a material that could potentially contain asbestos, we take a sample of the material and then send it off to be analysed by a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratory.
At the laboratory the sample will be tested and then a certificate of analysis will be created, giving the full details of any asbestos that has been found in the material. Results will usually be available to you in less than 36 hours from the sample being taken, but we can offer an expedited turnaround service if you require the details urgently.
Crucial Environmental can provide you with a full asbestos report after the survey has been completed and samples have been analysed. We can offer you recommendations and assessments regarding the management of any ACMs. Our reports will be printed in full colour and bound then presented as a hard copy as well as being emailed to you in PDF format.
After an initial survey and report, we can return to re-inspect ACM on a regular basis to monitor the situation and ensure that the risk of human exposure has not increased.

Asbestos Lab Testing
We establish the presence of asbestos by working in conjunction with UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) approved laboratories. When working across residential or industrial sites across London, we will take samples of any materials that could potentially contain asbestos. These are then sent off to an accredited lab for testing.
This is necessary because it is not always possible to identify asbestos simply by looking at it. Some materials that contain asbestos (for example, floor tiles or insulation board) look identical to harmless materials. Our experienced team carefully collects samples from possible asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) to avoid any risk of accidental exposure. We typically expect to get results back within 36 hours of the sample being collected.
The Dangers of Asbestos in London
Asbestos presents a serious risk in many buildings in London. Unfortunately, asbestos was not banned completely in the United Kingdom until 1999, so many buildings built before this date may contain the material. With the fast pace of development that we have seen in London, it is common for buildings to be altered, extended or even demolished, and it is these kinds of activities that can lead to asbestos being disturbed.
As long as the material is in good condition it is only usually dangerous when it becomes damaged and fibres are released into the atmosphere. Once there it can be breathed into the lungs and this is where it can present a serious health risk. As asbestos can be found in a large range of materials it can be very important to have your home or business property checked thoroughly.
